Katazome is a traditional Japanese surface design technique using stencils and paste. We will apply a quickdrying paste through handmade stencils onto fabric, then dye the cloth in a prereduced indigo vat. This unassuming pasteresist method leads to beautiful results. Students will leave with samples of cloth they have pasted and indigo dyed, and the knowledge to make and experiment with this nontoxic Japanese paste in their own practice. Materials fee $30, payable to the instructor. Download supply list.
